dense the affair surfaces right after the election, not before but right after and before the intelligence chiefs go to capitol hill to get grilled. as an old intelligence analyst, and i could be totally wrong this is my interpretation, the administration was unhappy with general petraeus not playing ball 100 percent on their party line story. he was getting cold feet aboutiving under oath and i suspect these tough chicago guys knew of the affair for a while, held it in their back pocket until they needed to play the card. i don't like conspiracy theories and i could be wrong but the timing this, again, right after the election and right before he is supposed to get grilled on capitol hill, it smells. maybe it is coincidence but let me allay your concerns on one count. our nation has -- is not going to be suddenly vulnerable. and the deputy director will fill in, unless obama administration decides to appoint a political hack which could be the case they may want a politically reliable guy to get them through benghazi. >>neil: you talk about the benghazi hearings, couldn't
that it is scorched earth and we pick up the pieces. >>guest: the logic piggies off the results of the election, the republicans are mean spirited, and they are only out for the rich and they will hammer you so we well let you get hammered and pick up the pieces and inthe ones that pick you up later on and dust you off and save you while the mean democrats rally around. >>neil: they will say it is the republicans who are holding you hostage? >>guest: that is what president obama said on friday. go ahead and pass a few of the other things and only 3 percent of small businesses will be hit but he forgets to say that the 3 percent, 50 percent generate the jobs and the capitalization. >>neil: he will have a series of meetings before he mets with the congressional leaders and first is the labor leaders. >>guest: it is shaping up to be like the job council, which is big business and academics and unions, and it should only be small business owners, how can you keep dismissing this? he doesn't like any small business. he accident like any small business at $400,000 a year, because they will get crashe
that democrats are feeling their oats after the election and saying, look, this isn't about just marginal rates but the marginal rates and this, not either, or, but "and" this. >>guest: that is what chuck schumer said before the election, saying close loopholes and raise the rates at the same time, which is exactly the opposite of tax reform. >>neil: how does a guy like that who represents the financial capital of the world sort that out and its economic impact. >>guest: this is an important point i am glad you brought it up. what is the financial capital of the world? new york wants to be and it has been so what chuck schumer is talking about, is imposing higher taxes on capital which is going to make lop done or hong kong the financial capital. it is like nebraska senators voting if higher taxes on corn. it is kind of a crazy thing. >>neil: what do you make of republicans coming into this thing, and it is good to put things on the table and that is what speaker boehner did and some republicans have criticized him for creeding -- ceding a point. >>guest: he said the right thing, we are willing
of washington before the excuse was "nothing can be done until after the election." >>neil: election over so now everyone is talking about the fiscal cliff with 53 days to go. just now. we were on it from day one. i'm telling you should be worried about this because both sides are to blame. we don't get hopping on this now we can be dogmatic all we want, you can be red, you can be blue, or you can just blow up, anyone who is paying taxes or anyone who is expecting to pay taxes will pay more in the new year. >> politicians have to step up to the plate and act in a bipartisan manner. >> do you draw the line that even credits and closing loopholes is a tax increase? >>guest: no, you should eliminate deductions and credits that no longer serve a purpose or --. >>neil: that is not a tax increase? >>guest: it needs to be offset by reducing rates. >> eyes are on the time period between the election and inauguration. >>neil: we have been warning you and monitoring the markets, look what happened today. there are a lot of earning news but after what happened yesterday, better than 312-point fall off so w
or overinterpretting the election? he says the american people support that view. what do you think? >> i don't think the american people support that. if his own campaign, axelrod came out and said the president does not have a mandate. the president didn't get a man difficulty to raise taxes. he was the other option when people didn't feel they had enough confidence to vote for mitt romney this vote wasn't a vote to raise taxes but a vote to move forward with where we are going as amation and try to have bipartisan work. >>neil: i don't think we will get that. i am saying that they are miles apart. you can cover a lot of ground in a month and a half but you have a lot ground to cover, so, someone has to blink. i think the president, because the critics say he blinked two years ago, doesn't want to blink again. the irony is that two years ago when he opted to extend all the bush rates, he did so because the economy was too fragile to tamper with raising taxes at the time. it is more fragile now. the g.d.p. is actually lower now. so, what gives? >>guest: absolutely. the economy is still in a very fra
entitlement and leave medicare alone. i know they won an election. they didn't win a landslide. and it is as if in exit surveys folks were saying, yes, yes, keep up the spending. we want to see more of it. >> that's right. and i think that's why we are in such a scary place right now, neil. we talked adnauseam about the deficit reduction which is the spending which has to be addressed. you have to get confidence back. you have to get businesses back to doing what they do best which is spending their own money and thought taking it away. if we grow out of this problem, that will put some of the tax hikes in perspective with regards to not hurting the economy as much. it is when we are slowing that this really hurts. >> well, i think wall street isn't buying this infomercial. judging from had today's losses and 700 points worth since the election either they want that money back guarantee or they don't want the money, period. >> i think that's it. i think they don't want the money, period. i think they want simplicity. i think they want cuts on the tax rates. but maybe an elimina
